comments on the ns aft controversy president obama said more americans learn about the nsa programs and safeguards built into the programs he believes the more comfortable he will be with the level of surveillance. >> i'm comfortable that the m comfortable if the americang people examined, exactly what was taking place, how it was being used, what the safeguards were, that they would say, you know what? these folks are following the law and doing what they say they're doing. >> reporter: but in a "fox news poll" published last week nearly 3/4 of americans believe the nsa electronic surveillance of everyday americans is serious with the minority believing it is just a phony scandal. this comes as journalist glen greenwald who broke the nsa story is promising to focus on the work of the programs after his partner on the left was temporarily detained over the weekened on a british terrorism statute. heather. heather: catherine herridge live for us. thank you, catherine. >> reporter: you're welcome. jon: so the government gets to decide which content is monitored? our next guest says th
with you too obviously. good discussion. monica, joe. heather? heather: still to come president obama said a year ago, remember this, the use of chemical weapons would be a red line in syria but now that there are dramatic new claims that the syrian government is behind a deadly chemical attack, what is the president's best next move and is he willing to make it? >>> plus a manhunt is underway for two thugs who randomly beat to death an 88-year-old world war ii veteran in an empty parking lot. the disturbing details and who police are looking for up next. >> we can not have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling in the hands of the wrong people. we have been very clear to the assad regime but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. that would change my calculus. heather: that was president obama a year ago, speaking about the use of chemical weapons in syria and today there are growing calls for the president to act, after video reportedly out of syria is said to s
for the update. >>> well, president obama has vowed to protect privacy rights when it comes to the national security agency mining for data that could stop terrorists as an important task. the president said that no one in the government is intentionally abusing the system, but there are new revelations of privacy v violations,. if congress and the white house aren't enough, one senator is calling for the supreme court to weigh in. >> reporter: hi, shannon. the national security agency defended its tactics this week as americans learn it violated thousands of privacy rules on thousands of occasions, ranging from area code errors to access legally protected communications. while some were unintended, others showed breaches of standard procedures. this week lawmakers discussed a failed amendment that fun fundamentally changed the way the agency could collect information. there may be something on the table next session. >> i'm hopeful we'll have another opportunity that might not be exactly the same amendment. this was an amendment to an appropriations bill, so it has to be written in a very
, this gregg? if you like your plan you get to keep it. that was a promise made by president obama when we were first getting into obamacare and reform of the health care system. there was also a promise made the cost of health care coverage would go down. well the situation at the university of virginia contradicts those two promises directly. three ways. number one, at the university of virginia, as you say, gregg, they are going to drop the coverage for your spouse, if your spouse can get coverage elsewhere. that is a policy, coverage which will not be extended. number two, it is going to cost the university of virginia $7.3 million extra next year because of obamacare. that cost to them has gone up, not down, up. number three, university of virginia will have to pay a lot more tax on the generous health care coverage that it offers to some of its staffers. so in three ways those two initial promises of obamacare have been abrogated so to speak and that is just at the university of virginia. it is also true at ups and several other leading corporations today. gregg: and, stu, to critics of o
this to rally international support. >> president obama repeatedly said the use of chemical weapons in syria is a redline or a game changer in his own words. this latest report is not the first time that we heard allegations of the assad regime using the killer weapons. critics are a cowing the obama administration of not enforcing the red lines that he set. the state department was pressed on the and she here's what the spokeswoman had to say. >> i am not talking about redlines or debating redlines and i am not setting redlines and not talking red today. >> in less than ten minutes we get response from retired cornell oliver north. >> new details in the truly disturbing violence on this side of the pond. chris lane, a baseball player was callously murdered out on a jog in oklahoma. they did it because they were bored. that's what one of the throw teenagers told police to killing lane for the fun of. it controversial comments from one of the young men's social media page suggested that boredom may not have been the only factor. hello garrett. >> hi, shannon, just a now months ago on a teen's
the irs cooperated or not, we don't know because we can't get a true hearing on the issue. obama said that his presidency would be of transparency. so -- americans can know what the government is doing but there is no accountability or transparency. because the people who deal -- are accused of what they are doing, no one has been fired. >> you know the bottom line here, american people just say, you know, what's going on with the irs? there's already a distrust of the irs anyway because of the huge bureaucracy that actually taps into your financial stability or your financial accounts. no one likes to pay taxes. now we are still hearing a distrust among american taxpayers. how do you get beyond this? >> angela and i would agree on this. the way i move it forward is ask -- for every irs tax exempt that has been not allowed an application or anyone that was checked for further information to public. we can all look at the list, we can all see what they allowed and -- to go lou which is public actually because you can look it up, all those -- financial centers. >> now that you said this
he was working to scrap our present health insurance pay system. >> obama care is a step in the right direction, but we're far from having something that will work. >> so we'll work beyond the insurance eventually? >> absolutely, yes. >> did you hear that? so goodbye private insurers, hello government-run health care. but don't say i didn't warn you. i suspect when i was covering the debate on the hill that this was ultimately the goal any way, and even though that some democrats expressed disappointment, that we didn't end up getting a single payer system, it was like a trojan horse deal ultimately leading to that. but enough about me. back to my panelists who want to congratulate me. by the way, they were also in on this. they're smarty pants in their own right. fake a look. >> ultimately that's the game plan, a single payer system. that's going to be a disaster. >> with the public plan, what it's going to do is increase costs for people who still have private insurance. >> all right. charles and dagan, with adam, gary. charles, you were saying the signals were there and now we're g
obama is saying we're doing a shot across the bow. for them we're going home. three days we don't want an iraq war. it has none of the effect of a shot across the bow. it is simply a way to assuage the conscience of a president and a lot of people in the west without achieving anything. >> one more challenge. the syrian government requested u.n. inspector teams stay on the ground to investigate the scenario that rebel groups have been using chemical weapons. that could lead to yet another delay. back to you. >>gretchen: syria is the main topic of discussion today and whether or not the president is going to actually make a decision today or not. this is really a serious matter. i think it is interesting to watch how this unfolds with sort of this deliberating with the president. we've known him over the last five and a half years to take time to make decisions, but do you need to be a little bit more definitive when making such an important decision as this. could it have to do with what britain is doing? david cameron called parliament back so they could discuss it there and parliamen
